HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The University of Alabama Crimson Tide's "Million Dollar Band" held a practice session at Oak Grove High School Tuesday afternoon in the cold weather. 

The 430 member band went through the motions of their routine before a small crowd of spectators.

Oak Grove High School Director Sharon Laird said, "Well, Randall Coleman, one of the directors, Facebooked me in mid December while we were out for Christmas break. They were in route to the Sugar Bowl today, and wanted to know if they could come and rehearse here at our stadium. He knew that we had good facilities. He had judged our band earlier in the year at our state championship, so he knew of Oak Grove and the facilities we had here and asked if they could rehearse."

The band rolled out of town after the practice.

The Sugar Bowl is in the New Orleans Superdome on New Years Day. 

Alabama will be taking on Ohio State in one of the national semi-final games at 7:30 p.m.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
